CEEMAN and PRME are sponsoring a Survey on Poverty as a Challenge for Management Education. We invite you and your colleagues to participate in this global survey.
Poverty issues are becoming increasingly important in times when we all are rethinking the role of business in society and therefore the role of management education in embedding social responsibility and sustainable development in the mindsets of future leaders. Poverty eradication is closely related to achieving the UN Millennium Development Goals.
We know that, globally, business faculty have developed – or are thinking of developing - interesting and innovative ways to teach and connect students to the issue of global poverty. A CEEMAN Survey on Management Education and Poverty Reduction, carried out in autumn 2008, found faculty innovation in this area. The CEEMAN Survey also found that that fighting poverty is a legitimate management education topic.
To date, though, there have been few efforts to systematically capture state-of-the-art curricular and pedagogical innovations developed by business faculty on the topic of poverty reduction. The current Survey on Poverty as a Challenge for Management Education aims to do just that. Survey results will become the platform for further discussion, collaboration and innovation on this topic.
Thus, we invite you and your colleagues to participate in The Survey on Poverty as a Challenge to Management Education. It can be accessed at the following URL: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/poverty2010
